reportedly killed at least 25 people in the northern part of that war torn country. the rebels immediately denied those claims and instead accused the syrian regime of launching the attack. president obama has made clear in the past that in his view, the use of chemical weapons by either side in syria would change the rules for our involvement in syria. chief washington correspondent james rosen is live from the white house with more. >> the pentagon has been more definitive than the white house telling us they have yet no confirmation, no confirmation that chemical weapons have been used by either side in the syrian civil war, it was syrian state-run television that first made the allegation, broadcasting images purporting to show the victims of the chemical attack being treated near the syrian border. assadd blamed the rebels and the white house stated there is no evidence the rebels used such weapons and the officials here are deeply skeptical of such claims by the regime. >> i can tell you that we are assessing the reports about the possible use of chemical weapons, as well as the repo

. it is really very upsetting, this entire thing. people in this country need help. everybody knows it, and the reason i am calling is president obama at some point has said that what we ought to do is give doctors the money, extra healthfor preventive care. you go into a doctor's office nowadays, and the first thing he does is give you a pill. a lot of people, they will give you samples. a lot of of people don't know, but these doctors get money for pressuring certain pills. and i think that is absolutely wrong. evidently, it is not illegal. i think somebody ought to look into that, because it would bring down the cost of everything. it would make people a lot healthier, because you would get and in ar, possibly better way. it would just keep a lot of these banks out of the ointment -- snakes. mitch mcconnell put out a statement on the three-year anniversary of obamacare -- host: we want to show you more of what the senator had to say. this is a statement they put out on youtube.
